This is another wonderful book that continues the series that began with "Freshwater Mussels of Alabama" in 2008. Like its predecessor this book is a thorough look that these shells that are found in Florida. Both of these books are simply fantastic and thoroughly cover their subject matter in every aspect that is possible. We should extend our thanks to the authors that have obviously spent a great deal of time and effort to share this work with us and also give thanks to the University of Alabama Press for making this book available at an affordable price. These are new books but have some very slight bumps at the edges of the covers.
